Public Notice Regarding Water Monitoring/Reporting Violation

Public Notice Newsflash

The Town of Flower Mound water system, PWS ID 0610023, has violated the monitoring/reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), section 290, Subchapter F. Public water systems are required to properly disinfect water before distribution, maintain acceptable disinfection residuals within the distribution system, monitor the disinfectant residual at various locations throughout the distribution system, and report the results of that monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator or whether or not your drinking water is safe from microbial contamination. This violation occurred in the monitoring period between April 1 and June 30, 2017.

The following actions are being taken to address this issue: The Town of Flower Mound performs daily monitoring of the chlorine residual in our water distribution system. All daily residuals for the period between April 1 and June 30, 2017 were performed and logged as required, however we failed to submit the report to the TCEQ by the due date. The delinquent report was issued on August 15, 2017. In order to prevent a recurrence we have re-assigned responsibility for submitting the report, and have added the item to our compliance tracking software.  

Please share this information with all people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (i.e., people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. 

For questions, please contact Utility Operations Supervisor Steve Allen at 972.874.6400.
